On a great journey
The year had started so well. After the rum debacle at Christmas, the Miss Fortune had set sail shortly after three king and refilled the rum supplies in the next port. The crew was back to its old self, with all its advantages and disadvantages. O'Connel smelt almost as before, and the food was as usual, too. Even one-eyed Pete was back to full fitness within his capabilities, being on level.
Then they had been cruising the Caribbean Sea for three months, always looking for booty and escaping from the Spanish. They just weren't having any luck, couldn't locate any merchant ships, and had once narrowly escaped a warship. The morale of the crew was therefore not very good when they finally landed the big score at Montego Bay. The loot was virtually unguarded and there were no major incidents during the loading either. Good, Skinny Norris had shirked work and then fallen asleep, which was why he had missed the departure. Wouldn't have been so bad if he hadn't thought he had to swim after it. He almost made it, but a shark like that is just in his element in the water and therefore a bit faster.
Now the whole ship was packed with bales of the finest tobacco. Everywhere piled the cargo, the ship was simply too small for such a load. A few sacks of spices were apparently also included and one or two bales had probably already started to moss. But that could also be the old planks of the Miss Fortune.
So on the passage to Point Comfort, the crew was in high spirits, while their captain grew more nervous by the day. The crew blamed it on possible discovery by the British. No wonder, they couldn't even have put up a proper fight, the gun barrels were stuffed with tobacco and they wouldn't have found the powder among all the cargo. But that was not the reason.
The captain had been reading a book, his Christmas present, captured from a British merchant ship. By an A. Smith, Wealth of Nations. At first he found it incredibly boring, but with the increasing slackness of the ship he was able to get something out of it, and that was an idea. An exceedingly dangerous, indeed, downright audacious idea: buy a load of tobacco cheap and then sell it on at a high price! BUY! If the crew found out, he'd be toast.
And so, increasingly fighting his nervousness with rum, he hoped to get through the days before arriving at Point Comfort. For one thing was certain: he would not dabble in honest trade any time soon. It was just far too risky...

-----------

The Tobacco Reserve starts very sweet with tonka and tobacco. Sage spices and nutmeg provides a very subtle spiciness. Fruity notes flashed briefly times and are then gone again. I would not have recognized currant. A little moss at the end and that's it. The initial sweetness becomes more bearable as it progresses, resulting in a finely balanced scent between tobacco and spices that also has a fairly good longevity. Smoky I do not find him thereby.

Pirate thanks to Serafina!

Savagely Sophisticated
What we have here, is a hidden gem. I didn't think much of Tobacco Reserve immediately after application, other than having the classic Aramis DNA. Which didn't last long before taking on a new identity. After a few minutes, I got serious Tobacco Vanille vibes... if Tobacco Vanille came out in the 80s, due to the considerable amount of oakmoss in the composition. I'm aware Aramis was released in '66, but came to be quite popular in the 80s.

Tobacco Reserve has its very own personality, with some familiar facets relative of Tom Ford or Spicebomb Extrême as some have mentioned. I say that confidently with both notes and quality in mind. I hate the term "beast mode", but I'll say it's savagely sophisticated.

Gentle and only at the beginning sweet tobacco
I usually find tobacco exciting in scents and so I did not pass by here. In my eyes, Tobacco Reserve starts off very sweetly at the beginning, which would be too much for me if this went through. But it does not do so, because on the one hand it becomes less and less sweet or the sweetness bearable, on the other hand it remains unagitated here. The perfume is not obtrusive, but rather charmingly casual. Sure, at the grade it might be more environmentally friendly but that somehow raises Tobacco Reserve to a higher, more sublime level. In my eyes something for everyone who likes to smell tobacco in perfume but does not want to fall into the house with the door. Anyway, after two hours it gets rather harsh. Will find its place in my closet and be taken out from time to time.

A fine representative of tobacco scents
Aramis was previously unknown to me. I have become attentive here in the forum. I wanted a tobacco scent and I chose Aramis Tobacco Reserve.
From the beginning, one has a slightly sweetish, not too strongly spicy tobacco note. The tobacco note is pleasant and reminds me of pipe tobacco. The tobacco note becomes more subtle with time, but the fragrance becomes spicier and pepper is added. A slight fruity note is still discreetly present. I smell moss rather discreetly in the background.
Conclusion
A fine and subtle tobacco scent. Since it is not too strong / powerful, I carry it to work. Not a must have for me, but not bad either. A comparison with Spicebomb Extreme ? Spicebomb Extreme is for me a bang, a spice bomb of the very best kind, no comparison. Aramis Tobacco Reserve with emphasis on tobacco, Spicebomb Extreme with emphasis on spices, two completely different fragrances. My honest opinion.

The Gentle Beauty
I don't know why, but I really like that smell He has something sweet, something tobacco and something green.
No one component disturbs the other, because everyone stays in line.
The fragrance feels harmonious and orderly when you perceive it.
It pleases me again and again to see him also on my clothes which are lying around in the room since 2 days and wait to be worn again.
That pays off in terms of durability if it is still well noticeable on my T-shirt after 2 days.
It is a good all-rounder that can also be worn in spring.
Only at very hot temperatures it could get into a frenzy due to the heat so that it is inedible.
But all in all a "must have"

Sweet, Green, & Aged Tobacco blend...
This is a good tobacco fragrance. The house of Aramis has done this before, with Havana. Whereas that one was more spicy and green, this is more musty and sweet. I love the vanilla here and it balances with the dry, musty tobacco. The oakmoss, nutmeg and clary sage combined with the tobacco (and to my nose a vetiver note) gives this a dry, greenish tobacco quality. In terms of the dark, tobacco vibe mixed with vanilla-ish sweetness (from the tonka bean), it reminds me in the opening of Bvlgari Black, but only for an instant. From then on it develops into a very well blended grown up scent.

I do love the way that this is mature and it is dark and green but also sweet. I think this is a good addition to tobacco fragrances in general. This definitely fills a "green tobacco" vibe and it is a good choice for a developed nose I would say. I don't think this appeals to a very young designer audience but those who love tobacco and mature smells will like this.

The better extreme incense...!

A blind buy, I admit.

From the oldschool bottle, a mixture of tonka sweetness, fruit and tobacco first pours out, reminiscent of CK One Shock. This opening is not too bad, but for me personally it is a little too sweet. But very quickly after that the scent changes. The sweetness disappears almost completely, and instead a spiciness develops that I find unpleasant, dominated by extreme nutmeg. And this duo of tobacco and nutmeg, which reminds one intensely of incense sticks, becomes very close to the skin very quickly and the perfume does not change from now on. All that remains for hours is an unattractive herbal smoke.

For me a sloppily composed fragrance, without heart(note), let alone soul!

The better Spicebomb Extreme
This fragrance is certainly not one that everyone is familiar with.

Also the brand "Aramis" is probably only known to people who know something about perfume.
But doesn't mainstream mean just as bad?

The answer is very clear: NO !

With this fragrance, Aramis has probably released the best fragrance I have bought in a long time. Now I wear it almost every day in winter and it never gets boring because it is something special that you can't smell on every corner like One Million or Sauvage. The scent of fresh tobacco leaf and nutmeg, as well as tonka bean and currant is simply world class. And the best thing is that the perfume is available for an unbelievably good price in a department store that has already been mentioned several times in the statements.

For me the best winter perfume currently available for men. For this price you can't get anywhere near as good a perfume on the market.

Of course, Spicebomb is mainstream and is heavily pushed by many (including Pirouette Man) on YouTube and Insta, etc., but the scent is just too sweet and can be described as a cinnamon-vanilla bomb. Aramis goes a different way here and creates a winter scent that is much more classy than Spicebomb extreme. Also for younger people I can only recommend this fragrance.

The best fragrance from Aramis in a long time.

You are welcome to tear me to pieces for this, since there are a lot of Spicebomb fans and since this is my first comment here.
But if you compare the prices here, Aramis is the clear winner for me

Who put the tobacco leaves with the black currants?
This Aramis is going a very unusual way.
I can still remember that my grandfather, probably more secretly, grew tobacco himself somewhere in a corner of the huge garden behind the house. The leaves were carefully threaded and dried after harvesting. Later the tobacco was cut and what did not go into the pipe was also rolled into cigars in cover sheets. That wasn't really the aroma of the noble cigars he used to get from a noble wooden box with leather cover. By the way, I know him almost only with a cigar in the corner of his mouth, and it didn't even have to be lit.
The tobacco aroma here reminds me of the somewhat hung tobacco leaves, no longer fresh but also not thoroughly dried.
This is not a smoky scent. Tobacco doesn't burn here. No, Tobacco Reserve gives the aroma of the wrapper of a freshly made cigar. I really like him that far, too.
But what if the grown tobacco grows next to the bushes of the black currant? Even on the property of my grandparents, since black, white and red currants were also harvested and processed into juices, jams and compote.
And anyone who has ever harvested black currants knows how intense the aroma is.
Was this the inspiration? Or has anyone harvested both together and placed the tobacco leaves between the black currants? I think my grandfather would've been upset about that fake flavor.
And I'm a bit at a loss whether I like the combination tobacco leaf and black currant or not.
It is inspiring and yet so striking that you have to like this combination if you want to wear the Aramis Tobacco Reserve.
Another player, the tonka bean, adds a bit of the aroma from the cupboard with the baking ingredients. This reconciles the poles of tobacco leaves and black currants, which are difficult for me to bring together. I'm torn. I'm torn.
In any case, I am grateful for the inspiration to have been taken back to the late summer garden of my grandparents.

Sacred Opulence and the All-Father
Aramis landed another one with that. This has become rare in recent years (or decades). However, the part is extremely extravagant, very special, actually already nischig. The blatant incense sticks / incense note described here has right Wumms. Like the whole scent. This humming hardly calms down and torches off long and intensively. Paired with the other primarily sweet components, this results in a mega-high-pitching scent cocktail of puffed herbs. Also in the end it remains (only) lovely, but becomes a little more striking and darker. It's almost a bit of a frenzy. Associations to "herbs smoked at a young age" do not arise at all...no, no. Also our keeper of order (attention wordplay) might get big eyes and pupils, if the car window is lowered for the delivery of the driving licence and the cloud evaporates from the vehicle. A subsequent pupil test should be safe.

Well, I don't know. I think I only bought it because it's pretty unique for me and a "real" Aramis. So, out of decency, somehow. I also take was not really masculine, but to women it does not fit either (except see later in the text). From the level and the speciality (not from the smell!) it should be possible to position it next to the Aramis (Classic) (unfortunately I can't find anything about first scent impressions from 1964). I had read in another commentator once, "it is not a scent but a smell". That's the way I'd see it here. The or a peculiarity, something long and sensational both have as characteristic. But I can't spontaneously think of the occasion for which I should wear it - except to go to church or as an altar boy. The fragrance could fit to the "Allvater" because of the sacral opulence (who knows the series "The Preacher"...). No kidding aside. Probably it comes across well on a lonely forest walk in autumn or winter (no matter region, the main thing is lonely). I once had an office colleague from the gothic scene. A very sweet and nice one (she had such small, sweet coffins in her potted flowers...). She always wore an extreme sweet Patchouli incense stuff unknown to me (was probably a self-creation). I think she'd like the scent. At the moment, however, I remain on the usage route.

But are 8.9 points really justified (at the moment)? Not to me.

Dry tobacco leaf, interesting to smell but hard to pull off for anyone under 50. Turns creamy and sweet after a few hours from the tonka.

Manly, mature, old school scent. The perfume is green with the tobacco leaf, sweet with blackcurrant, cozy with the tonka bean and smoky.

Quality wise it's pretty good, especially for the price. Perf is ok, scent is ok and dated. An overrated old man cologne to my nose. Pass.
